LSU football is among the top schools for a 2021 four-star wide receiver.

2021 four-star wide receiver Quaydarius Davis announced his top six schools on Wednesday and LSU football made the cut.

Davis, 6-foot/193 lbs from Dallas, TX (Skyline), is rated in 247Sports’ composite rankings as the No. 17 player in the state of Texas and the No. 17 wide receiver in the nation.

Florida, Oklahoma State, SMU, Texas and USC are the other teams in Davis’ top six.

Davis’ recruitment has already been a bit of a rollercoaster. He was previously committed to SMU and Texas. Rivals reported earlier this month that Davis is “weighing the opportunity to stay home and play close to his family versus playing for other nationally renowned programs across the country”.

247Sports midlands recruiting analyst Gabe Brooks says Davis possesses “burst off the line, especially when allowed a free release” and is “athletically violent”. Brooks also noted that Davis can “quickly get on top of defenders in vertical game”.

Davis was expected to make a decision this spring, but that timeline could be pushed back due to the coronavirus outbreak that’s pressed the pause button on the world.

However, even if Davis commits in the near future, that doesn’t mean his recruitment will be shutdown. This is a battle that will continue until Davis puts pen to paper during the signing period.
